The Ridiculously Awesome stamp set is so fun! It’s big and has great sentiments and I really like it. But it’s retiring 🙁 That’s why I want to feature it today, so you can see the retiring items and grab them up if you want them.

I made this card using the 2020-2022 In Color, Just Jade. I’ve grown to really love this color and I know I’ll be using it more. Doesn’t it look pretty here? The patterned paper on this card is the Butterfly Bijou paper that has sold out. I made this card a few weeks ago before it sold out.

The sentiment is punched out with the Label Me Lovely Punch. I love that the punch fits the sentiment so well. Behind the sentiment is a Square Vellum Doily, and behind that is a piece of Basic White cardstock embossed with one of the Greenery Embossing Folders.

This card is easy to make, and you could use any color. It’s just a bit of layering and a big sentiment ~ easy!

True Love Floral Thank You Card!

Handmade Thank You card using the True Love Paper by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #stampinup #stampingup #truelove #truelovedsp #peggynoe #prettypapercards #foreverflourishingdies

The True Love Designer Series Paper is beautiful…and it’s retiring! Over the past few days as I’ve been saying that things are retiring, I feel like I want to put a little sad face after every time I say that. It IS sad to see some of these gorgeous items retire 🙁 But, I can say that we are going to LOVE the new items, and that gives us a lot to look forward to!

This beautiful retiring True Love Designer Series Paper used to create today’s card is all black and white with floral and graphic patterns. The flowers on this card were fussy cut out of one of the floral sheets of the paper. They were then colored with Melon Mambo Stampin’ Blends and crinkled, by hand, into little balls. The flowers were opened back up, leaving the petals facing upward to make the flowers look “open.”

Behind the flowers are two groupings of leaves cut with the Forever Flourishing Dies. One grouping was cut from Just Jade cardstock, and the other grouping was cut from Shimmery White cardstock that was watercolored with Just Jade ink.

The flowers and leaves are adhered to a piece of Shimmery White cardstock that was lightly watercolored with Just Jade ink. Tucked under the lower left flower is a double bow tied from Whisper White Crinkled Seam Binding Ribbon.

The sentiment is a stamp from the Free as a Bird stamp set. I like it because it’s small and has a sweet font 🙂 After the card was fully assembled, I splattered Whisper White Craft Ink (from a refill bottle) onto the card using a Water Painter. This is a technique I learned from Debby Hughes at limedoodledesign.com. You need to let it sit to dry for a while, but I love the way it turns out!

Arrange a Wreath Easter Cards!

Handmade Easter Egg Card Using the Arrange a Wreath Bundle by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #eastercard #eastereggcard #arrangeawreath #stampinup #stampingup #peggynoe #prettypapercards

Easter is this coming weekend, and in case you haven’t made any cards, here are two different Easter cards made with the wonderful Arrange a Wreath Bundle. This bundle, stamp set and dies are all retiring on May 3rd. This is a year-round bundle, with images and sentiments for yearly occasions.

I can’t resist showing you this cute picture I found of two bunnies snuggling together! How adorable are they?

The card above uses the die-cut wreath cut in sections to create what looks like ground cover under the eggs. The eggs are stamped in various pastel colors so that it looks like they are hiding in the ground cover 🙂 And the cute little sign is stamped and fussy cut.

The card above uses a different die cut wreath (you get two different wreath dies in the die set). Behind the wreath is a piece of Basic White cardstock, embossed with the Ornate Floral Embossing Folder. The sentiment is stamped on a 1″ x 4″ piece of So Saffron cardstock and adhered over the center of the embossed piece. The wreath is then adhered over the sentiment strip and a few flowers are adhered.

NEW VIDEO: Beautiful Magnolia Card!

Handmade card using the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set by Stampin' Up! created by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #goodmorningmagnolia #magnoliamemorydies #handmadecard #stampinblends #enjjoytodaycard #peggynoe #prettypapercards #stampinup #stampingup

The Good Morning Magnolia stamp set is SO beautiful! And it’s retiring! 🙁 This is a stamp set I will definitely be keeping in my personal collection. Over the next few weeks, I want to show you retiring products so you can grab anything you want!

Look at that detail! The stamp itself is what you are seeing on the flower. The leaves have been colored with Granny Apple Green Stampin’ Blends, but the flower was simply stamped in So Saffron ink. I’ve added nothing else. The video below is a tutorial showing you exactly how to make this card.

 

As you saw in the video, I also made an alternate card using the retiring color, Rococo Rose. This card uses another one of the Magnolia Memory Dies.

This set is so versatile and pretty. In my opinion, it’s a “must have” for any stamp collection! 🙂

NEW VIDEO: Make an Easy Spring Basket!

Handmade Paper Daisy Spring Basket using Stampin' Up! products created by Peggy Noe of prettypapercards.com #easterbasket #easter #basket #paperbasket #daisies #daisypunch

Don’t you love spring baskets? I do! I love baskets full of candy or flowers or eggs or presents, actually just anything!! So for today’s post I made an Easter basket using the base of the Love You Always Treat Boxes. This is a good way to make a quick and easy basket. Here’s a video showing you how to do it:

The Medium Daisy Punch was used to create double daisies that were glued together and then adhered to the basket with Stampin’ Dimensionalsl

The baskets themselves were made with the bases of the Love You Always Treat Boxes. They are sturdy little boxes, enough to hold plenty of chocolates 🙂

 

I created two different baskets – each uses the same designer series paper to wrap the outside of the box, but different colors of cardstock were used for the daisies. One is bright and one is subtle 🙂
